The Chair and Ms Tracy Nettleton, Head of Planning and Heritage, advised Members that a follow up letter had been submitted to Welsh Government regarding the application approved at the previous committee in relation to Penderyn Quarry (19/17586/FUL) to advise them of the need for urgency in deciding if this will be called in.  Ms Nettleton confirmed the solicitors acting for the Applicant had also contacted Welsh Government in respect of the same.
